When I heard these tracks Deep Dark Secrets, Bad Day, and At EaseÂ from unsigned Jenny Dalton it immediately freed my mind. This is what I miss, but it’s still out there; just need to search for it. I didn’t realize she has a solid developing story in France and Australia and its building in Minneapolis. Jenny sternly claims that her lyrics are real and stem from her subconcious.

â€œI think thereâ€™s a tension between the law as written, and the law as intended,â€? Mr Liebenson said. â€œThe DMCA was enacted in a very different era.â€?
Regardless, this is just one of many lawsuits that will plague the future. Lawsuits are typical in these type of technological transitions. Labels will continue to do whatever they can to protect their empire even through the murky results.
